Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

Water levels receding and warming up

After several weeks of watching the lake level begin to fall, only to have it rain and start all over again, we have finally in the last 2 weeks, seen the lake level consistently start to drop. It has been much drier and warmer over the period, which also has our surface water temps back to around 70 degrees, resulting in more adult swimmers here in camp joining the youth that have been swimming regardless of water temps.

Speaking of youth, we finally have our whole gang here now with Megan (boyfriend in tow) and Sara arriving last weekend to join Emily and Allison who are in their fourth week of their stay. We've had a lot of kids in camp as usual again this season and also have had several groups take advantage of the July Military Discount that we offer to honor and show appreciation to the warriors who have and continue to defend our great nations. (Canada and the USA alike)

It's hard to believe that July is almost over. Soon we will be bear baiting and cutting wood for next season. Wow, hard to believe. Again, it seems like yesterday that we just landed via helicopter here in camp. Our tenth season is certainly shaping up to be another great one with lots of excellent fishing and a great blend of our camp veterans ranging in experience from 5-45 years, and new guests who we have enjoyed getting to know, many of whom are planning to return to see us again next season.

Pictorial speaking, here are a few highlights of the last couple of weeks...
Brian Buchanan with one of over 800 fish the Norman party caught last week

Jack Trufant also with the Norman party is all smiles over this big pike

J.D. Heisler showing that when they weren't hammering pike the smallmouth bite was quite entertaining too

Jack Trufant with another big pike from last week

John Heisler shows off yet another nice pike from the Norman crew

Allison taking advantage of the "under the dock" smallie bite

Yes, the walleye are still biting too.

Tyler and Wyatt get in on the under the dock smallie action

Fran VanHoorweghe took about 20 minutes to catch this 36" northern last week from the narrows 

Randy Gaines caught a 34" northern on this Polish Plug given to him by a late friend. See the full story on our Facebook page.
